"The Nuclear Trap" - Director's statement
“Those who champion nuclear energy view the world through an industry, the decline of which they refuse to acknowledge. The revolution of renewables underway in our societies is seen as an attack. They stubbornly maintain that nuclear power generates safer and cheaper electricity than all the other energy sources… Our film strives to demonstrate that not only is this argument wrong, but that it is concealing a disastrous financial reality: the bill that future generations will have to pay due to nuclear power is colossal. Each nuclear disaster (Chernobyl, Fukushima), by increasing the obligation for new safety measures, sends costs spiralling and results in the construction of prototypes such as the EPR, which is exorbitant and so technologically complicated that many engineers are now saying that it will never work.” Patrick Benquet.
IT IS GREAT Suffolk County Council, Natural England and DEFRA (Department of Environment) are investing in these green initiatives. HOPEFULLY IT MEANS that these projects and investments will not be wasted by unwanted and unnecessary construction of energy infrastructure.
Sign the Climate Coalition’s Declaration for a Healthy, Greener, Fairer Tomorrow. The UK is at a turning point. As we build back from the current health crisis, we have the opportunity to rebuild a resilient economy that benefits everyone in society and tackle climate change and nature’s decline, creating jobs and protecting the most vulnerable in the UK and around the world. Or we can let the moment for change pass us by, go back to old ways and wait for new crises to hit.
